The philosophy of life is changed.The parents aspire their children to be settled in America or Britain or elsewhere than in India and that is for what they give birth to their young ones' today.So when their wish is get satisfied why the old should cry that they are not getting the support of their children during their old age.At the old age more than money what is required is the love and affection and a healing touch of the loved children that is conspicuously missing today.During the old age the the people will be put into physical,mental,and health disorders.But no one will be there to look after them including their own children because of the changed value system and changed economics of life.Hope Gerontocracy in India give a serious thought to this plight of the common old aged people of this country.
